Gluten Free Lasagna Recipe

As you know, I have Hashimoto’s Disease and try to eat gluten free as often as possible. I lean on this gluten free lasagna recipe quite often and nobody in my family complains.

I think we have entered a stage in life where pasta dishes are pretty easy to make gluten free. Do you agree? Italian numbers are pretty simple to swap out. In fact, most time, my family can’t even tell the difference when I secretly make the switch.

Gluten Free Lasagna Recipe – Mexican Themed

However, this gluten free lasagna recipe is different because I use corn tortillas as the base and not noodles. It truly has a different vibe. Super fun! Here’s the recipe! Hope you enjoy!!

Gluten Free Lasagna Recipe Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook diced onion, and brown ground beef. Drain off excess grease, then stir in contents of taco seasoning packet. Set aside.

In a 9×13 casserole dish, spread a thin layer of enchilada sauce evenly on the bottom. Layer tortilla halves, so straight edges line up along the outer edge of the dish. Continue layering to fill any gaps (it’s ok if there is some overlap).

Continue layering the lasagna in the following order (saving enough of each ingredient to form a second layer):  refried beans, enchilada sauce, beef and onion mixture, shredded cheese and diced tomatoes.

With the second half of ingredients, start the next layer as follows: tortillas, refried beans, enchilada sauce, beef and onion mixture, shredded cheese and diced tomatoes (optional fresh cilantro and/or black olives).

Top with a final layer that includes tortillas, a light layer of enchilada sauce and shredded cheese.
